During the set both Arnór and Þórarinn played piano at some point, Hrafnkell did backing vocals and harmonies, and I'm pretty sure Vignir had some computer wizardry going in the background that I couldn't quite make out from my viewpoint. During all the shifts on stage and during the entire set overall the band felt alive and nothing felt forced, awkward or out of place. If there were ever qualms about the band's live performance they've silenced the naysayers with the most recent string of performances. This is a band who have mastered their trade and will hopefully only get better with time.
Despite a lot of great moments the true highlight of the night was without a doubt saved for last. Eyes of a Cloud Catcher never fails to get a great reaction from a crowd but I've never seen, or felt, a better reaction than that very night. In the final chorus Arnór ran into the crowd and stood on top of a sofa, the band stopped playing but what seemed like the entire audience continued singing along with Arnór. It was a beautiful moment that was finished off with the heavy final riff of the song and some screams bringing a breathtaking end to a brilliant night.
